A Page Between Poem and Song
Poet and Artist-In-Residence Judy Halebsky curates two evenings of new work exploring the confluence between music and the spoken word.

Program for Monday, April 16th @ 7 pm:

Emmett Till A River (A Noh Oratorio) emanates from an unlikely synthesis of African American and Japanese poetic and musical expressions that explore the story of the 14 year-old boy whose brutal murder in 1955 shocked the world. A collaboration between poet and composer Kevin Simmonds and Theatre of Yugen Artist-in-Residence Judy Halebsky. Staged by Theatre of Yugen.

Fly Leaf: Judy Halebsky and Composer Dylan Bolles perform an improvisationally devised piece for voice and flute. Fly Leaf is shaped by the Sierra Nevada mountain range and the haiku of Matsuo Basho.

Readings by poets: Jai Arun Ravine, Jessica Lim, Navjot Deol and Dawn McGuire

Judy Halebsky is Theatre of Yugen's Artist-In-Residence. Her book of poems, Sky=Empty, won New Issues Poetry Prize and was a finalist for the California Book Award. Her chapbook, Space Gap Interval Distance was just published by Sixteen Rivers Press. On a fellowship from the Japanese Ministry of Culture, she trained in Noh theatre and Butoh dance in Japan for three years. The MacDowell Colony, the Millay Colony, and the Canada Council for the Arts have supported her work.

Dylan Bolles makes performances with people and environments, many of which involve the design and construction of new musical instruments and the cultivation of co-creative relationships through listening practice. His activities include a wide range of performance-based collaborations, time-based arts, installations, and sound compositions. These works strive to build communities based in shared temporal experience.
